David W. Strecker passed away (June 17, 2013) in Nice, France, near his home in Chateauneuf de Grasse.
David is survived by his wife, Lisa; and four children, Romain of Lynn, Ma., Morgan of New York City, Matthew and Jourdan of Chateau-neuf de Grasse and two sisters, Ann Strecker Brownell of Concord, Ma. and Sue Strecker Leiendecker of Norfolk, Ma. He was the son of the late Hayward W. Strecker and Helen H. Strecker of Marietta.
David was a graduate of Dennison University and Tulane Law School. He worked for Chemical Bank in New York, London, and Kuwait, and was the general manager of the Bank of Kuwait and Bahrain.
David's passion was the sea. After his retirement, he and Lisa spent much of their time sailing their boat to many places in the world and enjoying their home in France.
There will be a memorial service for his American friends sometime this fall. Donations in his memory can be made to the Strecker Cancer Center in Marietta.
